mccain four years ago? >> it sounds like a huge, huge mistake on his part. the only poll that matters, of course, is on election day and i worked on campaigns before. you can't not look at polls. gretchen, for mitt romney to say that he's not going to directly go after the president when we see his record so dower and pathetic and knowing the media isn't covering any of this. his huge gaffe was not admitting we were attacked by al-qaeda and where was the media on this? the ohm person that can take the president to task is mitt romney. the pressure it on for denver. i'll be there for "the five," but he really has to bring it because the media won't do that. >> gretchen: ten seconds. >> i think the big x factor is extremely passionate voters on the republican side. i think romney has a slight edge there and a little bit on the foreign affairs side that andrea is talking about. if you look among senior, look on the economy, all those key issues right now are trending towards president obama in the voters' minds and people getting comfortable with the idea of a second term. >> gretchen: 4
with the president, he's been able to elevate himself in the debates with senator john mccain and appear presidential. i want to remind how he did so. moments like this. >> in a short career, he does not understand our national security challenges. we don't have time for on-the job training, my friend. >> senator mccain in the last debate and today again suggested i don't understand. it's true. there are some things i don't understand. i don't understand how we ended up invading a country that had nothing to do with 9/11 while osama bin laden and al qaeda are setting up base camps and safe havens to train terrorists to attack us. that was senator mccain's judgment. >> the president also has this tenacity or tendency to ramble. in one democratic debate he appeared to be sleeping. the biggest pitfalls you would recommend that the president needs to avoid? >> i think actually, the rest of us may be sleeping when we watch this debate tomorrow night. however, i think the thing obama will have to work on, in his debate preps, they've been force-feeding him that old clip of hillary, don't do anything like t
the administration so long with john mccain and lindsay graham issuing this statement. we recognize that al-qaeda involvement in the terrorist attack that killed four americans is an inconvenient truth for a president that claims to be destroying al-qaeda. but it's not too much to ask why the administration has taken so long to state what appeared obvious on what really happened on september 11th, 2012. we're a back with our panel. so given all that we've learned in the last couple of weeks. how big a security failure was that attack on the consulate? >> it was far bigger than this administration is willing to admit. we knew the security situation in benghazi was getting out of control. there were attack on the british consulate which was closed and there with a attacks on convoy and attacks on the u.s. consulate, too. there were reports out of benghazi. u.s. issued a statement in august warning americans not to travel there, telling them there is probably bombings and a assassinations. >> paul: we also know that they called for the revenge against the united states for a killing by a terro
mccain and one poll said john mccain lost by 33 points in that particular debate. both sides are saying opposition is superior. romney understands this is a big deal. the entire month of october will be dedicated to debates. it could be the most important time of the whole campaign and imaren't voters with what could be the biggest area of information. >>shepard: we will look at the latest polls. this are a lot of them out now. more on how the campaigns are trying to tone down expectations for the presidential debate. if you are a candidate you want expectations as low as possible so when you get up there you look better than you were expected to look, right?

of media speak strategies and former senior advisor spokesperson to john mccain. thank you for joug us. nancy i want to begin with you. for six months they said this campaign is a referendum on president obama's record. now you heard paul ryan saying in his interview with chris that it's about choice. do you see this as a shift in strategy for the romney campaign and if so, is that why? >> i think it's right and proper for both candidates to offer americans a clear vision of their path for the country. i think it's a natural evidence luilgs. any time an incumbent president running against a challenger there is component of that that is referendum, but now is the time where we've got a matter of weeks when people have to cast their votes. now is the time for each candidate to be crystal clear about the direction they would take our country. >> heather: alex us what do you think? >> i think they were energized by the romney-ryan team gets this. when you look at the choice that americans have, it's like mitt romney came straight out of central casting. he has a guy and talking about who i
palin will do as mccain's running mate in 2012? >> i'm not telling. >> there's talk he'll drop sarah palin in this election. are you going to vote for him then? >> yes. >> bill: here with reaction david webb and from americans for prosperity, the one and only jennifer stefano. i've done on the man on street, and that's the best i've seen. tell me what you think. >> positively breathtaking. the woman who doesn't believe in killing, because believes in torture. amazing. >> bill: they said that obama was a mormon, that romney was a muslim. mccain's running. this one's running. ryan is with the obama thing. >> it's frightening. it's outright frightening. i've got the whole clip, went through 7 minutes, 32 seconds. there's even more of it. what's scary here, sean, is why the tea party took hold and needs to continue to grow. people need to get more involved. if you're that ignorant of issues, the basics, who's running, what year they're running, you become the tool of a political despot. the obama administration will feed you a narrative, which works on these people, and have you vote. >>
up by 5 points over john mccain. 50%, 45%. a case could be made that mitt romney is doing better than john mccain did. but that might be misleading. the presidential race is going to come down to just a handful of states ohio and florida being the most important governor romney plus win in both places that's why today's polling news is causing controversy. talking points has said from the very beginning that the debates this year will be the deciding factor one week from tonight in denver, colorado, the president will meet the governor at :00 p.m. eastern time. no question and all the polls show this that most americans are not happy with president obama's leadership, especially on the economy. many of the folks don't trust mitt romney. however, if the governor can do what ronald reagan did in 1980, that is keep the incumbent president on the defense during the debates, then the polls will surely change. that's not an easy thing to do because the debate formats allow the candidates to say pretty much whatever they want to sacht the moderator next week jim lair is not going to control
of the mccain campaign back in 2008 in those days at the end when you felt like the campaign was grasping at every new ornament that it found on the tree. it's being distracted. one week it seems to be libya. the next day it's medicare. the next day it's whether the president has said something about a bump in the road. and i think the voters, it's very confusing to have these very short-term responses in the romney campaign. of course every campaign has to have a rapid response. but usually that should augment what is the overall strategy. it shouldn't become the strategy. and at the moment it seems like they are trying to win each news cycle rather than win the election. >> they have been chasing news cycles. and in virginia, he talked about defense cuts. that's what direct mail is for. that's not for your candidate to do that. that's what surprised me a little bit, is that romney went -- and i think what the critique is getting at, it's not that it's just small ball by the campaign. tactically you should do some of these things in certain states. but the candidate himself amplifying it
against john mccain and some others, and doing his level best to get under romney's skin and romney's just about what a tough debater portman is, on a number of cases, it's been portman's responsibility to try to irritate mitt romney or trip him up on the issues and he's played an important role on this and this debate is six segments, 15 minutes long east and the first three are about the economy and the fourth is obama care and health care reform. the fourth is on governoring and the 5th is role of government. all of these things will dominate the discussion, but romney is planning after this coming debate on wednesday, before the policy speech on the week before the vice-president debates, the attempts by the romney ryan campaign, to go beyond the economy and try to do the whole campaign contrast in the last four years. >> an exciting time for all the americans who said now, carl, they'll tune in more, leading up to the debate. thank you, campaign carl, good to see you. moving on now to president obama and his visit in the swing state of nevada tonight. the president arrives in las vega
about the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisors say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact, it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's credentials on the economy. >> it's not so much that suddenly eureka, this is so surprising, so amazing, but rather, people nod yes, this is where we thought things were going. >> reporter: it's possible we may have already seen this election year's october surprise. maybe it was how the candidates reacted to tragedy in libya and the broader unrest in the mideast or maybe it was mitt romney's now infamous 47% remarks, or perhaps one or both of the campaigns is holding damaging information about the other, or there will be an unforeseen event on the world stage. it's hard to say, since if we could guess, it would not be called an october surprise. dana bash, cnn, washington. >> we'll see if there are any surprises come wednesday. >>> up next, he
'm sorry, john mccain. but they're a reflection of how people feel right now. we still have five weeks to the election. >> it's nice to see you in person. >> great to be here. >> let's do this more often. >> i'll come up. >> appreciate it. >>> and quick reminder for you, as well. it's a really exciting night. i like to call it date night, but it's debate night in america. it's right here on cnn. we've got extraordinarily special coverage. come on, wolf blitzer and anderson cooper together, it does not get better than that. 7:00 p.m. eastern and if you can't get to a tv, you got your ipad or laptop, we stream this live on cnn.com, do not miss it. be a great voter. longest lasting, full-size pickups on the road. so, what do you think?

obama and senator mccain. >> not the way it was during the primary races. one of the things that you learned from that moment with benson and quayle, is they have been watching dan quayle, this young, some would say not fully prepared senator, and not prepared for the national stage, and watching how he kept comparing himself to john f. kennedy to show that kennedy was also young and they were ready to pounce with that. >> these guys have been on both sides known each other, going to be their opponents, reviewing individual yes videotapes, studied about them, forgetting about whether mitt romney has zingers or not they have some prepared lines ready but more important what overall kind of meta impression is that people get of these people. for mitt romney the challenge is great. a lot of work to do on the stage and one of the most fundamental things americans still have fundamental doubts about whether they see him as a potential president. apart from whether he can prosecute a case against obama he has this bigger thing to do, solve a problem with the fact that a lot look at him and
and senator mccain sits there and g that's impossible, but i can't prove it. now we have four years to look at and say, what did you do? why did do you it? defend what you've done. that makes it a lot easier for governor romney n my mind, than senator mccain. no more theories. now we've resume. >> steve: that's right. and in fact, the romney camp has kinds of changed their strategy over the last couple of days publicly and now they're going to make it a choice. so many people know that the economics of our situation right now are horrible and if you look at history, there is no reason this president would be reelected given the past, if it's prologged, given the fact that unemployment is above 8% and gas prices close not closinn on 4 bucks. mr. romney presenting a choice, four more years of this, or the american people will get to determine what kind of america they want to live in. a mitt romney america or a barak obama america. >> gretchen: so no doubt that the two teams who are preparing both of these candidates are saying a lot of time figuring out, what are the negatives about the othe
-fall the market was still searing and panic and rage not a good time to be the incumbent party or four john mccain to be saving resources and campaign media blitz. especially more than one-third of fort -- voters could not be moved with the illicit -- less sens barack obama got imploring ohio voters to take advantage of early boating he is not stupid but seizing the moment that is why we question they could blow the moment of the shane paul ryan is one thing when he first unleashes him here to what switches smart but it is still piling up voters in record numbers continue to pile up their ballots that looks dumb especially most will have the long before election day that for the moment barack obama looks good. that does not stick but it does not matter for them. why the romney campaign does not leave a minute to spare. air and i was startled by the numbers but they need to get the ads out and fast? >> look at i would this week the obama campaign says more than 100,000 ballots are from democrats versus 40,000 republicans. the obama campaign will hit them again and again. neil: i don't know the reco
. in 2008 in iowa, then senator barack obama received fewer votes than senator john mccain on election day. but still won the state due to tally from early voting. this year, president obama could receive the same edge from early voting. and the iowa secretary of state's office says that democrats have a 5 to 1 advantage over republicans in the number of absentee ballots requested. now, though the state's republican party promises to close that advantage by election day, the candidates seem to have embraced early voting. both camps approximate put out ads that look and feel like closing arguments. here's president obama's. >> it's time for a new economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. read my plan. compare it to governor romney's and decide for yourself. >> and with a very different pitch, governor mitt romney. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we shou
and had someone been disappointed with some the effects of that. then we had john mccain who really never came out and endorsed the faith community at all. and then we had a president elected and all of us were excited. i was excited with the hope and change message. hoping some good things happen. i vote for democrats. i vote for republicans. i was excited about that. after four years, looking at issues like same sex marriage, all of the life issues which the president does not stand for, and you see religious liberty being attacked as never before in this country. the faith-based community now understands what the alternative is is. and we understand that mitt romney, while some have said well, he is a mormon he is not an evangelical may not be the candidate of our religious choice, i can say with a surety that he aligns with family values, with the same sex marriage values, with the life values much more with the evangelical community than this president does. >> dr. mark smith, you are the president of ohio christian university. thanks so much for coming in and giving us your perspect
, michael crawley, and justin sink. rick? >> find me a voter for voted for mccain four years ago and now says obama. it's a small segment of the population. this is the kind of message. it's an invitation to the former obama voters, the one-time obama voters who may be supporting him right now, on the fence right now, to say join us on the other side, you don't have to hate the guy, that he's the wrong direction for the country, we're giving up on him, moving the other direction. it's a powerful message, something the romney campaign would have liked to tap into a few months ago. >> greta: michael? >> how are the people in the middle, willing to vote for either party, not strong partisan, how are they going to break at the end of the day? they could decide it. >> the romney party will break overwhelming against obama. if he hasn't closed the deal yet, they'll get the voters. the cautionary note in 2004, john kerry was banking on a similar dynamic. he was hoping a lot of people that voted for george w. bush would say, i don't like the things worked out, i'll go with kerry. they split down
is running better than mccain ran in the polls. and i do believe it's because of disenchantment with president obama i know a will the of people myself antidotal doesn't do much good here. who they are not sure about romney, that's why i'm saying that the first debate means everything if he can inspire people who are not devoted. 42% devoted to president obama are not going to vote for romney. there is swing area there where if the president comes off weak or flustered. if romney can fluster him. romney is going to pick those up quickly there is much bigger than the first debate. >> i would say president obama is a known quantity. is he probably not going to change people's opinions of him. romney is a little different. even though he has been doing this for years now we have been through a whole series. people didn't watch those. people didn't watch the convention he have a big audience he is the one that needs to make a big impression. >> bill: no doubt. people need to look at the two men on the stage and think gee i can see that other guy as president. he seems okay to me. i
camp played the race card on bill clinton, on john mccain, on sarah palin. >> on poor girl -- girl dean ferraro. >> this was a quick turn around. i realized it was nothing but racial dem gogery. they can't run on obama's record, they can't dig up divorce files on mitt romney. so what's it going to be? race. so i wanted to get the book out quickly. as a result, the jack flap indicates well, obama doesn't really engage in the race baiting. when i actually got to the end of the book and wrote those, there is a lot more than i thought coming directly from the president. >> steve: chapter 16, the media cry racist in a crowded theater. you have a list, kind of a laundry list of things that if you support a certain thing, the media quick to label you a racist. for instance, if i were opposed to obamacare. >> racist. >> steve: if i joined a tea party? >> yes, definitely racist. >> steve: if you're a republican or support gun rights. >> and the word the. don't forget the word the because fox news contributor allen colmes brought the word the up with me on his radio show. the. if you say the blac
romney or john mccain just saying i have a problem with this. we're talking about lawmakers on both sides of the aisle including senate foreign relations chairman john kerry. he is circulating a letter demanding answers about libya, egypt and yemen and all the other uprising and what we did and didn't know. >> gretchen: because sources are telling fox news 24 hours after the attack they knew it was a terrorist attack. they mobilized and labeled eight terrorist attack because you mobilize several specific movements that are authorized under a particular resolution when you call it terrorism. they have continually said it's under investigation. the same sources say the f.b.i. is not even on the ground in libya. how can it be under investigation? how can it not be a terrorist attack after 24 hours they my it was terrorist attack. >>> do you remember when the interim president said a terrorist attack and it was administration officials saying no, it was about the movie and spontaneous reaction to the movie. now, we know there are no f.b.i. agents on the ground. i think the man on the ground w
president obama and then the senator and then john mccain. there is no doubt that paul ryan is expecting romney to go very hard at president obam asuggesting that there has been a sort of a misleadingleading ad deceptive framework for the campaign. mr. romny and ryan are trying to frame this as a choice between the dependency society and the romney society, which they say is built on independence and personal responsibility. watch. it. >> i know what president obama has done. i know the empty promises, broken promises. i know the ugly, stagnant economy. what are mitt romney and paul ryan offering to get us back on track? i think that's what we will get out of wednesday. if we get that out, the country understands the choice. >> stop lying, mr. president. >> lying? >> yeah! >> what's the lie? >> governor romney is not talking about tax cuts for the wealthy. he says that the wealthy will take just as much under the romney administration as they paid today. >> you can see jersey governor chris christie saying what mitt romney has been claiming, say that this barack obama ads are false. he w

's overpreparation where the rehearsing backfires a little bit? >> had john mccain on our show on "morning joe" and he talked about that. he said you sit there for weeks on end, rehash and remembering your lines. a point where you have to walk away and be yourself. you had david axelrod say to you the other day that the romney campaign has had more preparation for this than it took to invade normandy so, you know, everybody is setting this funny bar of the other guy's so great. he's unbeatable. >> trying to set expectations low so it will be easy to see them. has this reached the point of absurdity. >> we in the media, what's going to happen in this first debate? what do people think is actually going to happen that -- we've seen thousands of hours, and we haven't seen them together, but other than one of them saying the most horrific thing, what do we think is going to happen that we haven't seen before with these guys? what are we waiting for? >> there's some hope that we will not be aiming towards immedia mediocrity and these two guys are the smartest guys we have available to fix the probl
